Growing up we always had a variety of animals. In the early 90's I decided it was time to have a 4 legged companion. My older daughter worked at a boarding kennel at the time and brought me home a girl of unknown background, Elvira. Then my boss decided Elvira needed a friend and my daughter needed a dog to show, so Kallie the golden retriever entered. Kallie loved training classes but hated to show. When Elvira died suddenly Kallie needed a friend so I got my first English Lab, Bella. My adventures in the world of pure bred show dogs began in full. I had a great mentor in labs and learned so much. Meanwhile my daughter showed the dogs and enjoyed the activity. In 1999 I decided I would like a different breed, one I can show myself. I started looking and found the spinoni. I had seen a spinone on one of my trips to Italy but was so busy at the time with work, I gave no thought to the breed. After many phone calls I spoke with a breeder who had many of the same ideas that I had. So in July 2000 my spinone adventures began. I flew to Kentucky and met Pat Fendley, Mals About Spinone. With her guidance I was able to pick my first spinone, Mals-About Echowin Gavi. Gavi has opened many doors for me and has helped me make many new friends from all over the US. Pat has become a great friend and mentor.
We welcome calls regarding the breed and always will answer your questions. Visits are encouraged when planned. We are located on the western slope of Colorado. 970-464-4833
